Exploring the Greek Island Naxos, Naxos, Greece (B)

During my island-hopping trip in the Cyclades, I also paid a visit to Naxos: an atmospheric island with imposing mountain massifs, fertile valleys, delicious Greek food and locals who love to welcome you! It’s a beautiful island where you can easily spend a few days. In this article I’ll tell you my experience with this destination.

For the ones who don’t know the Cyclades that well: it’s an island group in the Aegean Sea which belongs to Greece. The Cyclades exist out about 56 islands, but the major ones are Santorini, Mykonos, Naxos and Paros. A big characteristic of the Cyclades are the white houses with blue doors and frames.
